Refúgio Tres Picos

Refúgio Tres Picos ( Tres Picos Refuge ) is one of the three huts on the Tres Picos main trail. Who rises Parque Estadual dos Tres Picos from São Lourenço road, I advise to stay in this hut. There are a natural pool, a beautiful waterfall close to the house, a good lawn and a particular vegetable plantation to increase the hiker/mountaineer diet.


The hut is simple but very comfortable. There are two fireplaces for cold nights; a good kitchen with a firewood stove; two baths with hot shower, 20 beds, a green outside area to camp close to the hut and a cook to make the best foods for the climbers/mountaineers.
